This mortgage loan is fully amortized over a 15-year period and features constant monthly payments. It offers all the advantages of the 30-year loan, plus a lower interest rate—and you'll own your home twice as fast. The disadvantage is that, with a 15-year mortgage loan, you commit to a higher monthly payment. Many borrowers opt for a 30-year fixed-rate loan and voluntarily make larger payments that will pay off their loan in 15 years. This approach is often safer than committing to a higher monthly mortgage payment since the difference in interest rates is not that great.
The traditional 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has a constant interest rate and monthly payments that never change. This may be a good choice if you plan to stay in your home for seven years or longer. If you plan to move within seven years, then adjustable-rate loans are usually cheaper. As a rule of thumb, it may be harder to qualify for fixed-rate mortgage loans than for adjustable-rate loans. When mortgage interest rates are low, fixed-rate loans are generally not that much more expensive than adjustable-rate mortgage loans. Fixed-rate loans may be a better deal in the long run, because you can lock in the rate for the life of your loan.
The increasingly popular adjustable-rate mortgage—also called a 7/1 loan—offers lower mortgage interest rates and a fixed interest payment for a longer period of time than most adjustable-rate loans. For example, a "7/1 loan" has a fixed monthly mortgage payment and interest rate for the first seven years. It then turns into a traditional adjustable-rate loan, based on then-current rates for the remaining 23 years. Rates will adjust annually for the remaining 23 years. It’s a good choice for people who expect to move or refinance before or shortly after the adjustment occurs.
Mortgage Assumptions: 15 and 30 Year Fixed Rate Agency Conforming Mortgage Pricing is based upon our published Interest Rate on a 15 or 30 year fixed rate term conforming mortgage loan. Rate and Annual Percentage Rate (APR) posted assume the loan is for an owner-occupied, single family, one-unit purchase transaction with a loan amount of $200,000, at 80% LTV with a FICO Credit Score of 740 on a 60 day lock with escrows, delivered to Fannie Mae. Monthly payment examples assume a loan amount of $200,000. The disclosed APR includes origination fees and other finance charges. The APR’s disclosed above assume closing costs of $2,000. Your actual closing costs may vary based on your individual transaction. If your down payment is less than 20%, you may be required to obtain Private Mortgage Insurance (“PMI”) and to escrow for property taxes and insurance. The payment examples shown above do not include PMI premiums, property tax escrow amounts or other insurance premium amounts, which will increase your monthly payment obligation.
